Re: Lock In Place in 3.2.1

I kind of understand the thinking behind this change: the active editor should be designated by the user requested system accent colour. Okay. Fine. Not just a red (or was it blue?) line any more, the active editor is indicated by a line in whatever colour the user likes. (I waffle between purple an...

Re: Writing in the "background"

Use the menu command Format->Font->Strikethrough, or shift-cmd-_ . It's a little weird compared to the other character attributes like italics, because you have to have some text selected for it to work.

Hope this helps!

Re: Writing in the "background"

If you want grey colouring, inline annotations can be changed to grey by positioning your cursor inside one, using ctrl-cmd-c, and selecting a grey colour. Not only will that particular annotation turn grey, but all new annotations you make afterwards will also be grey.

Re: Writing in the "background"

I beg your pardon, Louis. Strike-through and inline annotations (as Katherine suggested) are two ways I know of to achieve what you describe (text which appears in the editor but which doesn't compile.) If you want grey colouring, inline annotations can be changed to grey by positioning your cursor ...

Re: Writing in the "background"

Since Scrivener doesn't use formatting codes, I'm puzzled. You can use strike-through for this purpose, but it certainly doesn't look grey. (It almost sounds like you're confusing Scrivener with Ulysses, which has such a code that causes the text to have a grey appearance.) In any event, to get this...

Re: Metadata: field "duration minutes:seconds"

Two possibilities, either will work: ⋅ Create a custom metadata field called "Duration". Set its type to Date. Set its custom date format to "mm:ss" so that only the minutes and seconds fields are accessible. Use at will. ⋅ Create a custom metadata field calle...

Re: Keyboards ;This is a perrty cool thing:::

There is no way on God's green earth that I'm paying money to recreate the experience of typing on a manual typewriter. I spent too long typing on one as it was.

Re: Metadata: field "duration minutes:seconds"

I do have an idea, but I'm not at my Mac now. I'll test it and get back to you within about 5 hours.

Re: Legibility of Big Sur UI

Aaand ... having tried dark mode I cannot stand it! About thirty seconds was enough. I can't see a thing nor understand what I'm looking at. I'm going to suggest you look at dark mode again, and tweak your colour settings a bit in Preferences:Appearance, using the greyscale sliders in the Colour Pi...

Re: Removing inline annotations? Also, color question

As far as I know, the Colour Picker dialog is an unmodified system resource. It looks the exactly the same in any number of apps. So I doubt that anything like a tool tip can easily be added. Apple seem to think that it's self-explanatory, but I had to do some web research to really understand how i...

Re: Please separate spell checking from homonym substitution

If I recall correctly, this is an egregious Big Brother intrusion by the Mac spelling checker, which Scrivener uses. One has to put up with this BS all through the Mac/iOS ecosystem. There was great complaining when it first showed up, but there's not a lot to be done about it unless KB, may his sha...

You've posted this in Bug Hunt, but for the developers to see it, it needs to be in the Beta forum.
